Travesía Atacama-Uyuni is a private journey meant for deep immersion in discoveries from destination to destination and everywhere in between. Cross the desert from Chile to Bolivia in a 4×4 vehicle, led by an expert Explora guide and a local driver. Our lodge in Atacama, along with our mountain homes and the lodge in Uyuni –established in partnership with local families– are the bases from where we go out and explore, day after day, the unique landscapes and places of the Altiplano.
The architecture of Uyuni lodge and our mountain homes has been planned to reduce interference with natural surroundings as much as possible, and to highlight the landscapes that host every construction.Learn more >
